Shake and Bake

My friend Alina
alternative healer
aficionado
we met a million
years ago when she
had a Big Job
I a Small One
she took me to lunch
at Shun Lee Dynasty
she’s someone who goes
in and out in now
called about Upper West Side
miracle cure actually called
Shake and Bake
you shake (the best shakers
are in Bali) and then
you’re baked. My mother
50’s housewife used to
buy Shake and Bake
for our chicken. We
all liked it. Even though
healing was not
a household word.
Chicken was.

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
